My Version of Chocolate Chips Muffins

Pin It Now!


Since I am having these muffins as part of my breakfast, I upgrade them in terms of nutrinuous value. I replace white sugar with dark brown sugar. The molasses really give some deep flavour to these muffins. I replace part of the butter portion with vegetable oil. Using dried longan together with the chocolate chips. Lastly adding wholemeal.



These muffins are more on chewy texture. Sweetness from the dried longan and chocolate chips go well together. Although it is not buttery and rich as the early post, it still moist and nice.

30g dried longan


50ml water

(B)
1 egg
80g dark brown sugar
50g melted butter
40g vegetable oil

200g plain flour
